PREPARE TO BE BEAKED BY THE MAJESTIC EAGLE OF HISTORY Most of us are familiar with the greatest hits and legendary heroes of US history. In George Washington Is Cash Money, Cory O’Brien, author of Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes, does away with the pomp and circumstance and calls America’s history what it is: one long, violent soap opera. In his signature clever, crude, and cuss-ridden style, O’Brien reminds us that: · Teddy Roosevelt stopped bullets with his manly chest · Harriet Tubman avoided danger by having prophetic seizures. · Joseph Smith invented Mormonism by staring into a hat full of rocks. · Billy the Kid was finally defeated by the smell of fresh bacon. And there’s plenty more Star Spangled stupidity where that came from.

George Washington on Coins and Currency

George Washington on Coins and Currency

George Washington's hallowed face (or else, his full body) strengthens and reinforces social cohesion so that the currency ... as real money but only as surrogate money, a substitute for cash that stands for a certain sum in coin.

George Washington is the most popular subject on coins, medals, tokens, paper money and postage stamps in America. Attempts to eliminate one-dollar bills from circulation, replacing them with coins, have been unsuccessful. Americans' reluctance to part with their "Georges" are beyond rational considerations but tap into deep-felt emotions. To discard one-dollar bills means discarding the metaphorical Father of His Country. Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first Secretary of the Treasury, said that monetary tokens were "vehicles of useful impressions." This numismatic history of George Washington traces the persistence of his image on American currency. These images are mostly from the late 18th-century. This book also offers a close look at the pictorial tradition in which these images are rooted.

From 1776 to 1781 - the key years if the War of the American Revolution - George Washington fought primarily in New Jersey. He battled not only the British army and their Loyalist and Hessian allies, he battled with Congress, with the weather, for food and military supplies, with disease, and with some of his own generals. In New Jersey you can find more open-to-the-public scenes of his actions than in any other state. George Washington's New Jersey leads you through the war and through these houses and battlefields - places like Trenton and Princeton, where Washington's daring nine-day campaign changed the course of world history. Explore homes like the Ford Mansion in Morristown where Martha joined him during the coldest winter of the entire century, far worse than the winter in Valley Forge. Trace the action at the forgotten battle of Springfield, when 6,000 British struck twice, two weeks apart and under two different generals. And America's amateur soldiers stopped them both times! New Jersey was the most fought-over, bloodiest, burnt-out of the thirteen original colonies. It saw more action than any other colony. It was also the most central colony, so that no matter where in America the fighting was, the troops had to cross through New Jersey to get to it. Let George Washington's New Jersey be your guide to this historic ground.

Here is the story of the fateful marriage of the richest woman in Virginia and the man who could have been king. In telling their story, Chadwick explains not only their remarkable devotion to each other, but why the wealthiest couple in Virginia became revolutionaries who risked the loss of their vast estates and their very lives. "One of George Washington's secret weapons in his rise to power and immortality was the extraordinary woman he married. The story of the half-century-long married love affair of George and Martha Washington is truly inspiring." -Willard Sterne Randall, author of George Washington, A Life "Chadwick puts a more human face on Washington by creating a very detailed portrait of how he and the outgoing Martha lived: their food, their slaves and servants, their health, their furniture, their daily life together."-USA Today
